I Will Never Sacrifice My Children For Wealth – Frustrated Ogboni Cult Member Crys Out   Leave a comment

Truly sounds like a story out of Nollywood, but according to DailySun,
54 year old frustrated former Ogboni member, Chris Obi, in a new

interview with them is crying out that after being a member of the
cult for 15 years, a cult he joined cos they promised to make him
wealthy overnight, he has nothing to show for it. Then when he finally
made up his mind to leave, which he eventually did, the cult people
came for his life.
Obi who is based in Onitsha, Anambra State is bitter that he lost 15 of
his early years in search of wealth where nothing is given free. Not
ready to keep sealed lips, Obi, who was once a machine operator with
a firm in Onitsha before turning to merchandise, told Saturday Sun his
“I joined Ogboni because I wanted to be very rich. I was deceived by
friends. But I was in it for 15 years without getting any riches. I was
only dining with the high and mighty. They were only feeding me.
Whenever we go for meetings, which we call club meetings, I used to
eat sumptuous meals and drink so much. That would make me happy
but once I come back home, I became sad because I was still poor and
couldn’t feed my family.
Before I was accepted to join the society, I was registered. I even paid
a registration fee. It was
about N75,000 that I paid before they gave me a form to fill. I was
asked to supply some personal information in the form. Such
information included the names of my first born, my wife, my relatives
and my age, among others.
We were also asked to pay for certain things such as gadgets, they
cost N30,000 but I paid only N20,000. I got the money from my
contribution in the firm I was working before I joined the society. After
filling the form, they gave a date for my initiation into the society.”
While giving account of his initiation into the cult, Obi said he was
given a blood-like liquid in a calabash to drink as a mark that he would
keep the secrets of the society, which he is now determined to break
and damn the consequence.
“At the initiation venue, they provided a coffin, covered with a black
cloth. I was also given a ring and an handkerchief among other things I
can’t mention here. There were traditional priests who presided over
the initiation. I remember the priests shouted some incantations
which I later understood were warnings for me that what I was joining
wasn’t a child’s play.
After that, they put the ring into my hand and said that it was a
covenant that demands that I keep sealed lips about the activities of
the society. I was also given some liquid in a calabash to drink; the
liquid looked like red wine, but it was very red. I cannot really say how
it tasted. We were many that were initiated that day and we all drank
the red liquid.
When we had taken the drink, we were congratulated and welcomed
to the society with huge promises that we would get all the riches and
the powers that we desired. I went home that day feeling on top of the
world. I was excited that I have found a smart way to be come very
rich”, he stated.
To reassure himself that he was on the right path, Obi would use some
of the magical powers given him through rings and handkerchief. He
“The ring that I was given could be described as both magical and
fetish. I was told that I could just disappear in the face of danger if I
wore it. But it didn’t make me to disappear at any time. Actually, I
never got myself into trouble with anyone because all I wanted was to
be very rich. So, I did my best to stay out of trouble.
The handkerchief did remarkable things for me. With it I hypnotized
people to do my bidding. For instance, I was able to pay far less than
what I bought from sellers whenever I went to the market to buy
things. I could buy things and ensure my bags are full with foodstuffs
and other things with just N1,000 and I even get some balance from
the sellers. The handkerchief enables me to cheat sellers by getting
them hypnotized.”
Not satisfied with those little benefits from the magical powers given
him, frustration began to set in when he could not understand what he
would do to get the real wealth he needed. According to him:
“there was no time I was categorically told how to make wealth or get
riches but each time I asked them when it would happen, they would
tell me that I should just continue to attend the meetings and make
effort to get deeper and know more about the society. They said that
in due course I would find out how to get riches. So, I carried on with
them, with the hope that one day, they would reveal to me how to
become rich indeed.”
The beginning of the end, however, began when, on further inquiry on
how to get the desired wealth, he was told that he had to sacrifice his
first son. In his narration, he said:
“Something happened about six years ago which made me have a
second thought about the society and desired to take a walk from
I ran into a member of the society with whom I had been initiated the
same time. That means we were at the same level in the society. I
knew the man to be as wretched as a church rat before our initiation.
But when I met him in 2008, he had become stupendously rich. He
rode a very expensive car and I envied him.
He took me to a big restaurant in Onitsha metropolis and there he
bought me sumptuous meal and drinks worth thousands of naira.
When we got talking, he told me about how rich he had become. He
said that he had built a business empire for himself and dealt with
white men in Hong Kong. The man took me to one of his firms where
he prints many fake documents for several business transactions. He
said he wouldn’t get caught because of his connections with the
When I asked him how he struck it rich, that was when he dropped the
bombshell, saying that he had to sacrifice his first son. He said that
thereafter, he continued to kill his other unborn male children from his
wife. He said that whenever his wife was pregnant and was about to
give birth, he would find out the sex of the baby and if it turns out to
be a male, he would use his powers to kill the baby before it would be
The confession of his colleague dropped the scale from his eyes and
then it dawned on him that he needed to take a decision to proceed
and do likewise or take a walk. He eventually chose the latter.
According to Obi:
“I was shocked at what he said. He added that he had built houses
both at Onitsha and his village. His confession opened my eyes to
what I was supposed to do to get riches. It became crystal clear to me
that the society expects me to also sacrifice my first son to become
rich and I shuddered at the thought of it. I love my family so much.
They are all I have in the world.
In fact, I wanted to get rich quick so as to give my family the best in
life but it was the same family that was being demanded as sacrifice
for the riches. Suddenly, I began to realize that I was foolish to have
accepted to join the cult for riches. I regretted heeding the advice
from my friends who lured me into it. My friends, particularly the one
who was the general secretary of the society, had deceived me with
great promises of wealth, they had even told me that they saw my
father’s name in the Ogboni membership list when they were
checking the names of past late members. But the scales fell off my
eyes with what I discovered from my colleague who sacrificed his
From that point, Chris chose to draw the battle line with a group he
had served for 15 years.
“Suddenly, I began to hate the society. I couldn’t make myself to
attend the meetings again and I began to burn the fetish items they
gave me. After a few days that they didn’t see me at the meetings,
they sent that my rich friend to me.
He came to ask why I was being absent at meetings and I told him
that if the only way for me to get riches is to sacrifice my family, I was
opting out. He looked angry when I told him that and warned me
against the consequences of quitting the society. A series of
persuasion’s and threats followed for sometime so as to make me
change my mind but I stood my ground and drew closer to God and
was praying fervently.
After a while, I thought they would let me be. But they told me
through their delegation that they wanted to leave me because I had
not got riches through them. They added that my soul would have
been demanded by them if I had got riches before quitting. That
means they would have killed me and captured my soul as
He said at the point he was almost relaxing it was all over, the cult
“I thought they had gone out of my life forever when they said this, little did I know that they were actually planning to get rid of me
gradually. Later that year, 2008, I had a minor accident and it got my
legs swollen. And the legs continued to swell the more.
It defied all kinds of treatment I sought for it. In fact, I attended many
churches for a miracle of healing. I paid tithes, huge offerings and
even bought things for the churches but nothing happened until last
year January when I attended the crusade of the Lord’s Chosen
Charismatic Revival Ministries at Mgbidi where I eventually got my
deliverance from their attack”,
Obi stated with a sigh of relief
